2018 Portland Republican Caucus - Recap
Portland Republicans met at King Middle School on Saturday, February 10 and elected a slate of delegates to the State GOP Convention and new members of the Cumberland County Republican Committee. At the caucus, we also heard from U.S. Senate candidate, Eric Brakey, and from gubernatorial candidates Ken Fredette and Mike Thibodeau and representatives from the gubernatorial campaigns of Mary Mayhew, Garrett Mason, and Shawn Moody. There was also the opportunity to sign nominating petitions for these candidates and our state house and senate candidates to gain them access to the ballot. Thanks to all who helped make this event a success.
Over the coming weeks, we will be seeking candidates to fill State House district seats 37 (Stroudwater/Outer Brighton [south]), 38 (West End/Libbytown), and 40 (USM/Bayside) and State Senate district 28 (most everything off the Peninsula excluding East Deering). To find your electoral district, input your address information here: http://www.maine.gov/portal/government/edemocracy/voter_lookup.php.
If you are interested in being a candidate for one of these seats, please contact PRCC Chair, Peter Doyle, at email@example.com.
The deadline for submitting candidate paperwork, including nominating petitions and candidate consent forms, both of which must be notarized, to the Maine Secretary of State is March 15.
